Assistant Professor of Nursing at the University of North Colorado (UNC), Audrey Snyder, was recently named to the American Academy of Nursing for her significant contributions to the field of nursing and health care. Snyder was one of 164 nursing leaders to join the 2016 class of academy fellows who will be honored at an induction ceremony at the annual policy conference in Washington, DC this October.

Along with teaching in UNC’s School of Nursing graduate program, Snyder is also coordinator of the Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner program. Prior to her work at UNC starting in 2014, Snyder taught in the University of Virginia School of Nursing for 16 years.

Academy fellows are selected based on evidence of significant contributions to nursing and health care, as well as sponsorship by two current academy fellows. The American Academy of Nursing currently includes more than 2,400 nurse leaders in education, management, practice, policy, and research. The fellows include hospital and government administrators, college deans, and renowned scientific researchers. With the addition of the newest class, the academy fellows represent all 50 states and 28 countries.
